What a day for Mike and Will at Worcester market for this year’s Charollais Premier Sale! Following on from our sale leader at 16,000gns last year, we went one step better to top this year’s sale at 17,000gns with Foxhill Charollais Walkabout.
This was one of the first sons to be offered by the 4600gns Thackwood U Corker out of a homebred daughter of Carthorpe Grand Duke who has already bred a lamb to 2500gns sold to Oakchurch. This one joins the Logie Durno and Loanhead flocks of the Ingram family and will run alongside our sale leader from last year, Va Va Voom.
We were delighted to see Va Va Voom progeny sell well at the sale for the Ingram family with a 10,000gns top price.
Next best for us in our ram lamb pen was Foxhill Charollais William, a Rockvilla Ferrari son selling for 3100gns, with the Loanhead Triathlon son Foxhill Charollais Wheeler Dealer then selling for 2600gns. Another by U Corker in the form of Foxhill Charollais Wingman selling for 2400gns and then the Logie Durno Olympian son, Foxhill Charollais Wuhan selling for 1700gns.
Our shearling rams on the day sold to a top of 2400gns for Foxhill Charollais Viagra, a Loanhead Triathlon son out of a Crogham Hannibal daughter. Two other sons by Triathlon then sold for 1500gns and 900gns.
In a first for Foxhill we offered two shearling ewes for sale and Foxhill Charollais Venom topped the female ring on the day at 2700gns. Again by Triathlon, this one is out of a Logie Durno Olympian daughter. Our other, Foxhill Charollais Vita sold for 950gns.
A huge thank you to all the bidders and purchasers of Foxhill stock, we wish you all the best with them and look forward to seeing how they perform in their new flocks.
